PreSonus Studio 26c Audio Interface

The PreSonus Studio 26c Audio Interface is a portable ultra-high-def USB-C compatible audio interface designed for DJs and electronic musicians. Loaded with high-headroom, Class A microphone preamplifiers; a robust metering, Cue Mix A/B switching, high-definition 24-bit, 192 kHz conversion; and more, the Studio 26c breaks new boundaries for music performance and production.

The PreSonus Studio 26c Audio Interface delivers excellent audio quality with professional metering and flexible monitoring options. With two of PreSonus’ pristine XMAX-L mic preamps for recording vocals and custom samples; both MIDI I/O and line inputs for your favorite synths; plus professional input and output metering so you can keep track of your recording and performance levels, the PreSonus Studio 26c delivers amazing sound quality in a rugged, compact form factor. A complete recording studio right out of the box, the PreSonus Studio 26c audio interface comes with a complimentary license of PreSonus’ award-winning Studio One® Artist music production software, so you can get creating right away.

World-Class Recording Software Included
Seamlessly integrated with the included PreSonus Studio One Artist music production software, the PreSonus Studio 26c interface works with virtually all macOS and Windows recording software. Easy to learn, Studio One enables you to compose, record, and produce without getting distracted by the tools or hemmed in with track limitations. Need a new loop or sample for your latest production? Studio One lets you shop, audition, and purchase new content right from your production environment. And when you’re ready for more features, you can purchase add-ons or even an upgrade to Studio One Professional to add mastering, Mix Engine FX, and much more.

Superior Sound
The PreSonus Studio 26c operates at up to 192 kHz for ultra-high-definition recording and mixing. High-quality converters on every input and output and PreSonus’ professional-grade XMAX-L mic preamps enable you to capture complex musical harmonics smoothly and naturally, with no audible distortion. XMAX-L mic preamps are designed to perform optimally on bus-powered audio interfaces, allowing you to take great sound with you wherever you record.

Stress-Free Fecording
The PreSonus Studio 26c professional tools make any job easier. That’s why they included professional input and output metering on the PreSonus Studio 26c, allowing you to keep an eye on your input and mix levels when you’re recording by yourself. An easy to use direct monitor control blends the analog input signals with playback from your computer, simplifying monitoring. Two pairs of outputs afford two different stereo mixes. The Cue A/B button allows you to toggle between each mix while listening in on headphones, great for live performance and studio alike.

Wherever Sound is Made
Whether you're just getting into music production or looking to upgrade your DJ rig, the PreSonus Studio 26c will give you clear, clean, ultra-high-def sound in a bus-powered, rugged unit. While it’s a perfect companion for any recording software, the PreSonus Studio 26c and included Studio One Artist provide you with a complete, affordable recording solution that will make you sound great.

Make Your Own Magic
The PreSonus wants to make sure that their audio interfaces come with everything you need to craft your own mesmerizing spells in the studio. That’s why they include Studio One Artist with every audio interface product they make. But here in Louisiana, PreSonus has a word: lagniappe. It means "a little something extra," and it’s in that spirit that they also include the Studio Magic Suite of software with their audio interface products. The 2020 Studio Magic is a major step up from the 2019 edition, and includes Ableton Live Lite, tutorials from Melodics, 6 virtual instruments, and 9 effects plug-ins in VST, AU, and AAX formats... all unlocked for use inside Studio One Artist with a retail value of over $1000 (US).

    Great product!

    Posted by Paul K on Nov 29th 2012

    Great sounding unit, easy hook up. And with the Free "Artist" version of Studio One 2 software it's a fantastic deal. I'll be upgrading the software soon, but the capabilities of even the Artist version are impressive. Easy installation and a great selection of included plug ins. I'm a new fan of Presonus and Front End Audio!

    This Beast Is Coo-el

    Posted by Nick K. on Feb 3rd 2012

    As an owner of a FirePod & an FP10 (terrific PreSonus 8-channel interfaces that I use in my studio), I didn't hesitate to buy the AudioBox 22VSL when I needed a high quality stereo connection to my home PC for some late-night overdubs and converting my vinyl collection, etc. It's lived up to all expectations, especially with the VSL (Virtual Studio Live) software adding extra functionality to the superb sound quality of this unit. Using buss-power via USB 2.0 saves all the hassle of wall-warts, so makes portability "as-easy-as". Solidly built, too! Of course, FEA always sweetens the deal with very affordable prices. Highly Recommended
